What We Think

This cymbal is the definition of versatility, due mainly to its overall complete and full tone when struck. When crashed this cymbal unfolds quickly but is responsive enough to return to a ping for use as a ride. With this cymbal, you won't need another crash or light ride in your set up. The bell works great for accents and nestles into place with clarity, curving comfortably short of piercing, and with the right amount of sustain. Whether it is jazz, rock, or funk, there's a place for this cymbal in your collection. 

Manufacturer's Description from Zildjian

These hand crafted cymbals look as they sound – rich, dark, and complex. Reminiscent of cymbals from the 50s and 60s yet distinctly modern and relevant for today’s music, Kerope cymbals further solidify Zildjian’s place as the originator of the authentic K sound. Highly crafted cymbals that draw their inspiration from the very best cymbals in the Zildjian vault. We carefully studied every nuance of decades-old cymbals -- their bells, profiles, hammering, lathing, tapers, and weights to achieve an old world look and sound being sought after by so many artists today.
